Ameztoi Txakoli 2023, DO Getariako Txakolina, Spain

Founded in 1989, Getariako Txakolina is comprised of 177 hectares in the municipalities of Getaria, Zarauz and Aia. The majority of the grapes planted in the region are Hondarrabi Zuri and Hondarrabi Beltza. The vineyard sites are greatly influenced by their proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. The soil is chalky with rich, organic material. Ameztoi Txakolina is one of the top producers of Getariako Txakolina. The winery owns 20 hectares of vines in the best location. From the vineyards one can see the town of San Sebastian and understand the influence of the Atlantic Ocean on this vineyard site. Ignacio Ameztoi is the seventh generation to carry on the tradition of making Txakolina in the province of Getaria. Made from the indigenous grape variety of Hondarrabi Zurri (90%) and its red companion Hondarrabi Beltza (10%), the wine is fermented in stainless steel and bottled with residual carbonic that gives the wine its natural spritz. Tasting Notes: Bright briny sea salt combined with limey fruits. Fresh and eminently quaffable, tastes like joy and springtime.
